LAWCHA Labor History Award

The Organization of American Historians and the Labor and Working-Class History Association is currently seeking submissions for the 2015 David Montgomery Book Award recognizing the best book on a topic in American labor and working-class history.

This award is given in recognition of David Montgomery’s incalculable impact on the historical study of workers’ lives, aspirations and struggles in the U.S. and worldwide. Bringing to his scholarship a perspective honed through his own trade union and political activism, he was a creative, defining force in the “new labor history.” His attention to workers’ self-activity, on and off the job, fundamentally altered our understanding of American history on topics ranging from Reconstruction to globalization.

David Montgomery mentored generations of scholars at the University of Pittsburgh and Yale University and served as the President of the OAH from 1999-2000.

Submission Guidelines and Procedures

To be eligible, works shall be written in English and deal with United States history but may include comparative or transnational studies. Entry must be published between January 1, 2014, and December 31, 2014. The award will be presented at the 2015 OAH Annual Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, April 16-19. Submission Deadline is October 1, 2014.

Submission procedures and information are available at http://www.oah.org/programs/awards/david-montgomery-award/
